Appetite for Rock
Slash himself helped design the Slash AFD Les Paul Special-II with an Appetite Amber finish, inspired by Slashs own custom Les Paul. The AAA flame Maple Veneer top has single layer Ivory binding and the back, sides, and neck are finished in beautiful darl Cherry just like Slashs original. Both the body and neck are made from Mahogany, like all classic Les Pauls. The bolt-on neck has a Rosewood fingerboard with dot acrylic inlays and the headstock features Slashs Snakepit logo in gold silk print along with the iconic Epiphone signature logo in silver. The truss rod cover has the familiar bell shape with Les Paul Special-II in white. The die-cast machine heads (tuners) have a 14:1 ratio for quick and easy spot-on tuning.
Classic Zebra Coil Pickups
The roar of Slashs AFD Les Paul Special II comes from Epiphones new Ceramic Plus Zebra Coil humbucker pickups modeled after the famous (and ultra rare) zebra (black and white) pickups found on late 50s Les Paul Standards, the most sought after vintage guitar on the market. The humbuckers are powered by Volume, Tone, and Toggle controls with Gold TopHat knobs with metal inserts. But unlike vintage models, the Slash AFD Les Paul also comes with a built-in Shadow E-Tuner built into the bridge pickup mounting ring. The tuner is powered by one #2032 Lithium long-lasting battery, easily accessed from a compartment on the back of the guitar.
Premium Epiphone hardware
The Slash AFD Les Paul Special II features Epiphones premium all-metal hardware including a legendary Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece and strap buttons.
Slash Snakepit-15 Amp
Ask any pro guitarist whats the best sounding amp to use in the studio and the answer will be a small low-watt amp for its focused, razor sharp tone. Slashs custom designed Snakepit-15 15 watt amp features an 8 Electar G8 Classic-25 4-ohm speaker in an open-back cabinet that delivers terrific midrange crunch as well as clean chimey tones thanks to its two uniquely voiced Channels. Both Channel 1 (Volume and Overdrive) and Channel 2 (Clean) are easily accessible via the Channel Selector Button. The Snakepit-15 also comes with a full EQ section featuring controls for Treble, Middle, and Bass, an auxillery input, and a headphone output jack.
The Slash AFD Performance Pack also includes a premium gigbag with Slashs Snakepit logo in white, 3 Dunlop TortexTM Slash signature picks in three colors (white, black and purple), guitar strap, an Epiphone standard guitar cable, and for new players, free online lessons from eMedia.
